Transcript of Intro for The Tempest

William Shakespeare What do these words mean to you? In a nutshell Setting Characters How does the plot unfold to develop characters and theme in The Tempest? Written between 1610 and 1611, The Tempest is William Shakespeare's final play. In it, Shakespeare portrays an aging magician, Prospero, who has been living in exile with his young daughter on a remote island for the past twelve years. Over the course of a single day, Prospero uses his magic to whip up a tempest to shipwreck the men responsible for his banishment. He then proceeds to dazzle and dismay the survivors (and the audience) with his art as he orchestrates his triumphant return home where he plans to retire in peace.
